Cotteridge Wines Convention VI

We normally get beers from the taps first as Cotts are giving up the venue for free, so I feel it is good to grab a few, I’m going for Pizza as they were awesome last year, donner kebab pizza is god tier.

so Cotts 12am
Bottle Tasting 1pm
Pizza around 3pm


No problem @RichTheVillan, happy to play what ever.

I can eat Pizza as well as any bloke, and buy some tap beers at Cotts, plus some bottles/cans to take home.

I am just adding the beers I had at an International tasting in Brugge before the beer festival. I didn’t realize how strong they all were, no wonder I struggled to get out of bed on the Saturday. Everyone must have taken uber strong stuff.

No need to do that at Cotteridge everybody, some normal beers will be fine!

My plans for this year:

a) Get the recipe for the pizza. Tres magnifique.

b) Don’t book a 6:30 train home. Although I got an automatic refund for the second train I booked. I didn’t pick a ticket up as I thought it was an e-ticket. The guard let me off as she could see I was a tipsy simpleton.


We definitely need to swill some ale, and put money in the Cotts till. They look after us really well, considering we’re probably a collective pain in the arse to them, taking up a huge chunk of the tap room and leaving behind a massive pile of empty bottles. To kick the tasting off at the stroke of 12 would be poor form, I’d say.

Good for me. I think I got to Cotts about 12.10 last year

definitely agree here. Fortunately, they normally have enough interesting bottles/cans to relieve me of a chunk of money, as well as whatever’s on tap!


I’m going to be in Birmingham at the end of March for work so I need the telephone number for that pizza place!

Here’s somewhere to check out before Cotts, a new microbar just down the road:


It doesn’t open until 12:00 on Saturdays, but a good find and I may well pop in if I get to the area early enough.

Added a 2nd beer. Fruit sour from Gadds


If this event goes ahead then it coincides with when my wife is due to end her self isolation. And, by default, my semi-self isolation.

There must be a park everyone can sit in. Brown paper bags optional.


I can,sit 6 in Nelson and a few more under the awning if weather is ok.


I never drink 750ml bottles so at this rate I’m going to be turning up with a out 12 of them. Bought a few recently for ticks. That’s assuming the lockdown doesn’t go on longer than I expected and I end up having to drink them.

Thought I’d post this separately to the above ramblings.

If it goes ahead at Cotts can I suggest people put in £5 - £10 to participate… however that would work. They’ve allowed Rateberians to use the premises for however many years ago could give something back.

Given how many high profile events have been postponed recently I would love this to go ahead but I fear it will go like the other events and be postponed.
